  • Large, Clean, Great Location

    "We stayed here for 9 days while visiting Florence in April 2014. The unit is on a quiet side street close to everything. Located in a historic palazzo, we felt as if we went back in a time a bit while staying here. The entry is grand and fun to return home to after a long day. There was plenty of room for the 4 of us and we had local friends over for dinner or wine a couple of times. The Wifi worked great and allowed us to use internet phone while there (Verizon CDMA phones don't work in Europe). The kitchen was minimal and the only weak point of the unit, but sufficient for our needs. Having a clothes washer and a dishwasher was a huge plus, even if we did miss not having a clothes dryer. There were several great restaurants near by including our favorite, Fuori Porta, just outside the old city gate. Also gelato shops and mini groceries a plenty are right near by. Ponte Vecchio was a quick 10 minute stroll from the unit and seeing the crowds there, we were always happy to be staying a few minutes away. Don't miss the rose garden just beyond the old city gate. We would definitely stay here again. Lorenzo was easy to contact before, during, and after our stay."

  • Wonderful home away from home

    "We spent a week in the Al Corso apartment and could not have asked for a better place to stay. The location was perfect for us -- slightly away from the bustle of the central area, but close enough to walk there in 10 minutes. A bus stop across the street made it easy to get to other parts of Padua or to the train station when we wanted to make day trips to Verona and Vicenza. The apartment was stocked with everything we needed to make our own breakfasts and dinners, much of which we got from the Saturday market. Wifi worked well and we could even do our own laundry in the apartment, a big plus after a week away. We would stay here again anytime. Isabella has done a wonderful job in setting this place up to feel like home."

  • Perfect house for the big family!

    "My family and I rented the house together with my sister and her family and we were a total of 8 people. But we had plenty of room in this big house and the week we spent there was amazing. The location was perfect and we lacked nothing. Bill and Giuliana were amazing hosts and took the time to show us Moneglia, invited us for drinks and gave us a lot of great travel tips. We highly recommend this house and this wonderful village!"

Sicily Travel Tips

Discover Sicily Vacation Rentals

Sicily, Italy is one of the islands that the mainland owns. It is also one of the furthest islands from Italy in the Mediterranean Sea. As a large island, there are a number of destinations you may wish to visit from your Sicily vacation rentals. Depending on what you hope to see while on the island, you might want to stay in one of the bayfront Sicily accommodation homes rather than being more inland. Sicily has the distinction of being the world’s first “multicultural society.” It has historically always been a place for the mixture of different cultures, having been ruled by Asians, Europeans, and Africans throughout its history. If you want Sicily to touch you and your heart, do not wait to book Sicily villas for the summer months; travel anytime of year.

Travel Practicalities for Your Sicily Accommodation

Before you can book Sicily villas, you have to know where you want to stay. There are 12 top destinations on the Island of Sicily which you may wish to visit. Some of these destinations will provide you with white, sandy beaches, scuba diving, and sailing, while the others set you deep in the mountains. The top destinations include Aeolians, Taormina, Siracusa, Piazza Armerina, Palermo, Segesta, and the wine country of Sicily.

To arrive in Sicily, you have a couple of options. The mainland of Italy will offer cruises out to the island or you can fly directly to Sicily by using the Palermo or Catania airports. Both airports receive international passengers, though you will have to stop in Milan or Rome before flying to the island. The airports are generally small compared to most, but they do well to serve all travelers. Car rentals on the island are available if you wish to visit areas further from the cities. Public transportation like buses, trains, and taxis are also provided. Trains will depart daily from Palermo once every hour between 6 a.m. and midnight, making it easy to traipse around the island.

The Valley of the Temples Near Sicily Villas

Agrigento is known as the Valley of the Temples where you will find a nice Sicily accommodation. If you have a passion for archeology, this is the place you should head. Outside the town are olive groves and almond orchards. The orchards are celebrated by a February festival in which folklore is expressed. You can also experience several ancient Greek temples like the Temple of Concord. Agrigento is near Segesta which is also known for their Greek temples.

Mount Etna is Sicily’s Main Attraction

Whether you arrive in Sicily for the sandy beaches and watersports or for the mountain views, you cannot miss Mount Etna in the eastern section of the island. Mount Etna is perhaps the most important of all attractions in Sicily. Mount Etna stands at 10,922 feet and has the distinction of being the largest, active European volcano. The summit has mild eruptions each year but scientists state there is no imminent threat of it causing a major catastrophe. In 2008, there was a great deal of activity in the volcano which has since died down to limited eruptions in the past year.

Culinary Extravaganzas by Sicily Vacation Rentals

In Italy, food is almost an art form. Italians take their cuisine and wine very seriously which means you should take advantage of the local fare you might come upon. Your Sicily vacation rentals will have fully equipped kitchens, where you can try your hand at an Italian meal with fresh produce and seafood. However, you will still want to consider trying at least one local restaurant. Speak with a native of Sicily to find out where the best restaurants are located to avoid the more expensive tourist traps. By asking the locals, you should find even better food at a great price. Sicilian cheeses and wines from the wine region can be found nationwide.
